My question is: How many rounds have actually been fired in DHS security operations (i.e. chasing armed illegals, terrorists (not including the recent Boston affair), criminals and crazy people?
My son has been a federal police officer for about 5 years and has never fired his weapon at a threat. He has drawn his weapon a couple times to keep an armed, crazy person at bay until his team could tackle and disarm the guys. He has never had to unleashed his K9 bomb sniffing dog on anyone.
He does have continual fire arms practice to keep his skills sharp (he was a combat sharpshooter), but this would only require a couple thousand rounds at year, at the most.
We need to know how many DHS people actually have firearms training/shooting and how much they fire off per person or per year total.
Then we might begin to get a better picture of what a firearms training program involves per number of people per agency and how many bullets they use in it.
Just a thought, what if this ammo is destined for elsewhere.
It was suggested Benghazi may of been related to moving weapons, why not ammo to go with the arms? Or perhaps it is headed south of the border to go with the Fast & Furious guns?
